They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day since it’s usually the most nutrient-dense, so I’ve been trying to make mine as good as possible. There are three ways I’ll go for breakfast, depending on my time and my mood:
- Health Valley Cranberry Crunch cereal (which even got a good review by the discerning folks at The Empty Bowl) with Original Edensoy Extra. It’s an incredibly tasty cereal that’s also mighty healthy, and it works very well with soymilk.
- A bagel, half with Tofutti Herb and Chive Better Than Cream Cheese and half with Spectrum Naturals’ Essential Omega Spread. For that one-two punch of soy and flax, this is a nice, quick way to have a filling breakfast on the drive into work.
- Health Valley cobbler bar. Both their strawberry and blueberry are mighty tasty, and quite healthy. There’s no saturated fat, 100% of your daily Vitamin E, and 10% of a number of other nutrients (including B-12). It even has 50% of your daily Selenium (a trace mineral that helps the absorption of Vitamin E in the body—the two make a good antioxidant team). Note, though, that these bars are not vegan (they have whey and nonfat dry milk.
I haven’t grown tired of any of these three options yet, and it’s nice to know I’m not shoveling unnecessary amounts of sugar in my mouth first thing in the morning.
